    Hello All –

    I would like to get a list together of all of the Taco Trucks in town.

    Ideal information:

    Location (interection, in front of or near what business address)

    Hours operation – what days, what hours

    Best item on the menu

    Where does the vendor come from – Mexico (certain region), Central America, etc.

    This information will be used for – a blog post, maybe a podcast and a research project.

    As a side line, also interested in other late night carts and mobile food vendors in Columbus.

    Thanks

    Jim

    I’ve been to the Huarache truck at Broad & Hague which is in a parking lot at night and also there’s a good one far down Sullivant, where it’s pretty industrial and sprawly all in one. There is a taco truck blog: http://tacotruck.multiply.com/reviews. Can’t vouch for how up-to-date it is. If you pick up some local Spanish papers you will see some of these trucks putting out ads.

    There are 2-3 on Cleveland Avenue both north and south of Cooke Rd. I have not been able to try any, I just drive by them on emergency runs to GFS. Restaurant emergencies afford no time for burrito research unfortunately.

    There was one in front of the Salvation Army on Morse Road, I think like 2322 Morse or something like that on Saturday. Didn’t get to try it though.

    Are taco trucks open in the winter? I saw one when I was running around on Saturday, but I assumed it was a fluke since our one over here closed up months ago. I couldn’t tell you where except that it was next to a Salvation Army store, Morse Rd maybe? Anyway, I think a tour of taco trucks, a la No Reservations, is definitely in order this spring!!

    Anne, yay, you remembered. I had no idea where that was, lol. *embarrassed face*

    I know of two taco trucks up in Northland, although I’ve never tried them b/c I don’t usually carry cash, and I don’t know if they take debit. The first truck is on Cleveland Avenue, in a parking lot near the intersection of Cleveland and Abington (North of Morse Rd).

    The second truck is near the intersection of 161 and Maple Canyon, very close to the Hunan House and former Dockside Dolls. The truck is painted yellow and named “Taco Nazo.” I’m looking forward to seeing the results of your search. I’ve been meaning to try one of these for a long time.

    there is a great taco truck is in the alley (West Gay Street?) at West Broad and Souder Ave in Franklinton. it’s almost like it’s a secret. you can’t see it from West Broad.

    for five bucks you can get a a HUGE burrito with fresh ingredients including avocado. The owner is Marta. She is a very nice lady. She gave me a free mexican soda once just so i’d try it. it was some sort of kiwi or banana sugar drink. nasty. but the food there is awesome. they even have tongue!

    they are open in the winter.

    I support this post and this effort and am willing to travel to any taco trucks for research.

    Of course, there’s always the stand at 5th and Forsythe next to the Mexican grocery and Vic’s. It’s proved to be a staple for me when in the mood for some good and rather inexpensive eats.

    + a zillion
    It’s open (not in the winter) all week from 10a-10p.
    And the best thing there is the lengua tacos…although they hardly ever have em. The chorizo is great…especially with an egg added. The asada burrito or tacos are yum too.

    Are there are any taco trucks (or restaurants) in this area that specialize in Jalicso cuisine? I’d like to find someplace that serves tostadas con pulpos (o pulpos y camarones).

    La Casita on Bethel Road is as close as I’ve found to such a place.

    Here is the menu in PDF form, thanks to our own Columbus Foodie. (you should probably download it…and skip to page 3)

    Now that I think about it, Cuco’s has some pretty good ceviche as well.

    There is a tostada de pulpo on page 4 of the menu — thank you!

    Bethel Road is a bit out of the way for me, but I have heard good things about both La Casita and Cuco’s. I have more of a reason to go now.
